Hi. I need to create a digital map of a UK city , eg Leeds, showing city boundary and post code sector boundaries. For each of these areas I will need to insert text and designate a different colour.
After taking a look at this website, my little project seems very basic , but I am a complete novice and would appreciate any help.I have been advised to keave a post here by an academic!!. I have some free image editing software and MS Office app (Paint.net,Inkscape, Photoshop Elements) . The maps I am trying to create can be bought commercially but are quite expensive.
Do I hand draw the map, scan the image and then use other software?? I am unsure.

As an aside, this site is fantastic and has stirred a lot of intrigue is starting to create fantasy works!!!!

Many thanks for any help to get me started
